“I had been working in the hairdressing industry for fourteen years and had only completed my Level 2 NVQ qualification in Hair. So when the opportunity to complete my Level 3 hair apprenticeship came up, I jumped at the chance.
“Prior to commencing my apprenticeship, I studied for my Maths and English with Interserve, as I didn’t have them at Level 2. With the support of my Training and Development Officer, I achieved these qualifications, alongside my Level 3 in hair.
“Whilst completing my apprenticeship, I enjoyed the fact that I could still work in the salon running my column and with clients, all the while training and completing assessments.”
